  • How to sweat-proof your makeup

    Wed, 19 October 2016 11:00AM

    Yes, summer is the greatest. If you’re like me, you’ve been waiting for these lovely, summery days to start since like – JULY. I always think I love winter until it starts and then I’m immediately ready for the warm days to come back around again. But – there is a dark side to summer…. more

  • Chic Alors! The Makeup Secrets of French Women

    Mon, 14 July 2014 8:30AM

    Just as French women seem born with the innate ability to tie a neck scarf, bring up flawlessly mannered children, and arrange tomatoes perfectly on a plate, so too does the art of immaculate maquillage appear to come naturally to them. Melanie Laurent Today, it being Bastille Day – AKA France’s national day of celebration – we… more



  • Neutral Makeup Makes a Return at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards

    Wed, 5 June 2013 12:06PM

    I won’t say when, because it might give the old age away, but there was a time, in my early makeup experimentation days, that I wore solely shades of slate-grey and nougat-brown. These were usually set upon a complexion that could only be described as matte. Needless to say, I thought I looked a treat. And… more



  • Rimmel London by Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick

    Mon, 4 March 2013 10:46PM

    These look so velvety and voluptuous on lips, yet have an understated, cool edge at the same time. Which is quite Kate Moss actually! We love shade 107 – a deep berry that’s not too scary-dark – as well as 113, a nude that completely knocks out your natural lip colour, and is the one… more

  • The February Face (and why you need a Pressed Powder in your Life)

    Fri, 1 February 2013 1:13PM

    Lately I have been labouring under the illusion that today would be the first day of autumn. I’m stumped as to how I came to believe this. I mean, the seasons are one of the first things we learn in primary school. What’s more, I’m a February baby and have always relished having my birthday… more



  • Clarins Skin Illusion Loose Powder Foundation

    Tue, 16 October 2012 10:47AM

    It can be a little messy to use … but that’s our only gripe. We love the ultra-fine mineral blend that gives great coverage, we adore the accompanying brush (as little as it is, it buffs the minerals beautifully into skin), and we could ooh over the delicate matte finish for days. While we’re glowy-skinned… more

  • The Great Beauty Switcheroo: Glowy Hair and Powdered Skin

    Fri, 5 October 2012 5:33PM

    The past four Fashion Weeks have seen a frenzy of new hair and makeup looks trot down the catwalks. From green liner to neon lips, twisty ponytails to va-voom volume, we’ve witnessed it all. And, of course, most beauty trends tend to look amazing on models who, for the most part – Carolyn Murphy notwithstanding… more



  • How to: Wear the New Autumn/Winter Makeup Collections … in Spring

    Thu, 30 August 2012 1:38PM

    We’re a funny lot in the beauty industry. In bygone days, we complained because the gorgeous, limited-edition make-up collections would be available overseas for months and months before they hit our shores. We’d pore over them in international magazines, salivating, bemoaning the fact that we’d have to wait half a year before we could get… more

  • I’m with Team Gleam. Are you?

    Thu, 15 March 2012 9:48AM

    I know that you’re not meant to cover your entire face in shimmer cream. A zillion makeup artists have told me this. And I get the logic in this particular beauty rule … That the glimmery particles can sink and settle into crevices and magnify lines, making them look like wrinkles before their time. Or… more



  • Katy Perry does Paris, gets YSL makeover…

    Wed, 7 March 2012 9:54AM

    Whoah, Katy. When you sing “Now look at me” in your may-or-may-not-be-directed-at-ex-hubby-Russell-Brand ditty Part of Me, you really mean it, don’t you? I mean, look at you! Exhibit A: at the YSL show in Paris on Monday …  And this on the back of your is-that-really-you cover for Interview magazine … Exhibit B:   Image: interviewmagazine.com There’s nothing like a trip… more
